World Usability Day

World Usability Day

Tomorrow it’s the World Usability Day. It’s a day about making our world work better and about “Making Life Easy” and user friendly.

The World Usability Day was founded on 2005 by the Usability Professionals’ Association with goal of ensuring that services and products are easy to access and simpler to use. So each year, on the second Thursday of November over 225 events are organized in over 40 countries around the world to raise awareness for the general public, and train professionals in the tools and issues central to good usability research, development and practice.

This year’s theme is Transportation and understanding how our use of transportation impacts our environment and our everyday life.

This year I’m going to participate in an event organized by The Usability Page where I’m going to talk about Usability, its importance and then a little about what’s going on in Portugal in this area.

These event will be held on the beautiful city of Porto at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto.
